For the last 45 years, UV / EB energy curing technology has found its way in many markets. Experiencing high growth for many years, the future looks bright as UV/EB is adopted by more and more applications and industry branches. Not only as the most environmentally friendly technology, due to its low energy consumption and low volatile organic compounds, but also due to performance and economic advantages such as high scratch and chemical resistance and the high cost ratio benefits.
With increased government and corporate emphasis on regulation, innovation, renewable materials, emerging energy technologies and sustainability, opportunities for UV/EB technology are expanding rapidly.
